Real estate is all about location, location, location. And when you live in Dallas, being located a stone’s throw from White Rock Lake and the Arboretum is about as choice of a spot as a prospective homebuyer can hope to find.

Perched high on a hill, 428 Edgelake Dr. in Lake Highlands Estates is just northeast of White Rock, providing pretty vistas of a lush greenbelt and easy access to walking and biking trails around the lake. But that’s not all there is to love about this property.

The 2,470-square-foot, circa-1953 home has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and two first-floor living spaces, all of which have been beautifully updated. To wit, hardwood floors and recessed lighting are found throughout, as are large picture windows that maximize the home’s views.

Speaking of those windows, the den boasts an especially large one, as well as a wood-burning fireplace and access to a side patio — a great place to unwind with a glass of wine and watch the sunset.

Need a refill? Head into your kitchen, where cosmetic upgrades like stone countertops, a sliding barn door, and a beautiful tile backsplash are enhanced by top-of-the-line appliances, including a commercial-grade Bertazzoni gas range and built-in wine fridge.

The space opens to the dining room, with a breakfast bar for casual dining. A built-in-laden utility room also serves as a mudroom, though hopefully you won’t be traipsing in much mud thanks to the attached two-car garage.

You’ll find a 17-by-13-foot master retreat downstairs, which includes an elegant en-suite bathroom featuring his-and-hers vanities, a soaker tub, and a separate jetted walk-in shower. Three additional generously sized bedrooms, each with hardwood floors and plenty of natural light, are upstairs.

All in all, the home's interior has charm to spare. But with a sizable, heavily treed backyard and the lake as your playground, you may prefer to spend your time enjoying the amenities outside this home, which is listed by David Collier of David Griffin & Company for $689,000.
